This is a marvelous piece of history that our children need to watch. Many children have not got a clue that years past their mother's would have been baking bread from scratch. Today, although the bakeries make our bread it is filled will all sorts of additives, artificial flavors and colors. When will we get back to the basics and start making our bread and cooking from scratch. Yes it may be more time consuming but, at least you will know what is going in your food.

A nice little 1946 informational vocational film about the baking industry. There are many less smaller retail bakeries now. They have been replaced by bakery sections in supermarkets.
interesting little film with alot of good footage. seeing all that food made me hungry! a bit boring at times, but with with plenty of historically important footage.

This vocational guidance film focuses on commercial baking. Mostly it shows how bread is made in factories, and this is pretty interesting. ThereÃÂs also some footage of work in small retail bakeries and some of the narratorÃÂs comments here are kind of questionable. Like when listing the various electrical appliances used in bakeries, he adds, ÃÂand in some cases, ovens,ÃÂ implying that some bakeries must still use open fires. And despite the fact that the film even mentions that women have been the major bakers for thousands of years, he asserts that women are only good for ÃÂlight work,ÃÂ such as putting the frosting on cakes or being eye candy at the front counter. These mildly campy moments, as well as the excellent factory tour footage, and footage of all the goodies, make this one of the better of the vocational guidance films, which are usually pretty dull.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.

These 'Your Life's Work' films are so funny, as they present 'qualifications' to what is needed to be a baker, which of course involves Physics, chemistry and mathematics. A wide variety of bakery jobs are shown and described specifically here, like the pan loader. "The pan loader loads the dough into the pan'. The film poo-poo's the idea of women getting into the baking industry instead saying that "In some bakeries women are employed in light work such as putting frosting on rolls or cakes. but in retail business, women are in greatest demand as salespersons". So THERE. Reccomended!
